Michael Müller studied Biochemistry at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena and conducted his bachelor thesis at the Leibniz-Institute on Ageing Jena (FLI) and his master thesis at the Institute of Immunology in Jena. He then continued his research activities as a doctoral student at the Institute of Immunology in Jena where he performed research on the influence of IL-17 on the progression of arthritis in a mouse model. In 2019 he moved to the University of Rostock where he was in charge of the Core Facility for Cell Sorting and Cell Analysis. He expanded his expert flow cytometric knowledge with a variety of projects and collaborations. During the corona pandemic, he was in particular engaged in immune monitoring studies using high-parameter spectral flow cytometry. In the Zielinski lab he is now in charge of coordinating and conducting immunomonitoring studies using high-dimensional single-cell technologies, in particular spectral flow cytometry.
